Format: Paperback
This book will have something for you. The author clearly has a wealth of experience of this style of fishing in a variety of waters. Although some of the situations are not really relevant to most UK anglers (i.e. lots of pike stacked up in shallow spawning bays), Reynolds communicates the excitement and practicalities of the technique very well indeed. Also lists recipes for some of the deadliest pike flies. I find myself dipping into it time and time again.

A must for all pike fisherman 11 Jun. 2004
By Terry Wickstrom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As an oudoor writer myself and the host of both radio and television shows I am always looking for material to recomend.
This book not only covers fly-fishing for pike, but gets to the core of pike behavior. Barry does an excellent job of explaining what pike are doing when and why. He covers water temperture, seasonal movement, the influence of structure, cover, baitfish and other predators. I truly believe this book will make you a better all around angler.

A Must Read for Any Pike Angler 23 April 2004
By Matthew VanLandeghem - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is such an awesome book for ANY pike angler. The first few chapters explain locations and seasonal movements of pike, and the science behind the pike's environment including feeding habits, spawning, different lake types, etc. The "Presentations for Pike on the Fly" chapter is really where the fly-fishing aspect takes over (Ch 5). Many new recipies for pike flies, over 20 in total. The great thing about this book is that Barry explains how he uses each type of fly and when to use specific types of flies. If you haven't read his first book, "Pike on the Fly," read that one first and then get this book. "Mastering Pike on the Fly" is a 10-year refinement of the tactics explained in "Pike on the Fly." Barry Reynolds knows his stuff well!!
Mastering Pike on the Fly Strategies and Techniques 10 April 2013
By EyeHunt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is absolutely 100% what I expected and I have not read the entire book yet! It is extensive on the subject of Northern Pike, Reynolds has put a lot of personal know how into the book and one can tell that he knows Pike, Pike science and how to catch them on a fly rod and I am sure that Reynolds can catch Pike with any rod and reel because Barry knows Pike! I am convinced if you read and study this book as the Northern Pike Bible and take it totally seriously you will have the equivalent of at least a Masters Degree on Fly Fishing Northern Pike if not a PHD! Excellent Book and recommend it to anyone serious about Fly Fishing Northern Pike! Go for it and go fishing! Enjoy!

Excellent Book 4 Jan. 2007
By David R. Kent - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Overall this is an excellent book just like the first one on Pike by the author. Both books cover some of the same material (e.g. where fish go during the different seasons), but they do not completely overlap. This book spends more time covering how to catch pike when they are being difficult. If you have the time, read both books. If you can catch pike on the fly during good days but have trouble during bad days, this book will give you new things to try.
Great Book 6 Nov. 2011
By Giles Cadman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As someone who caught a lot of pike in England on spinner when I was a teenager I was fascinated by this book. It provides really good basic information about chasing pike, with my favourite part being Chapter 5, Presentations for Pike on the Fly.

Reynolds does what many fishing writers fail to do effectively and provides a very clear strategy for chasing pike. Armed with this knowledge I am looking forward to my fishing trip in North East Ontario next summer where I am promised there is a lake full of pike.
